[ Gieniral Orders 40 The Gand Army of the
Department Commander W. D.
Stanffer has issued a general order to
the Grand Army of the Republic of
Pennsylvania directing that May 30 in
Memorial Day, which, he states, is the
only authoritative Grand Army desig-
nation of the day, and not Decoration
Day, and urging the army, as well as
the poblie, to give emphasis to this on
every occasion.
In part, the order reads: ‘‘Our Me
morial Day is not a day of sackcloth
and ashes: it is not a day of mourning
‘or for fasting, nor should it be a day
devoted by any patriotic American to
frivolous festivities or to holiday pas-
times. It is a day for the flag for
flowers, for music, for patriotism; a day
for communing with the dead who died
that the nation might live, for the dead
who offered all they bad, ‘that this na-
tion might not perish off the earth’
“In twining wreaths on the monament
to leaders we pay a tributa to those who
were led; a rosebud on the grave of a
private soldier or sailor symbolizes our
love for the memory of all who wore
the Union blue, whether on land or sea;
whether they sleep their list sleep amid
tablets of marble or of brane, or found
their last resting place beneath the
mingling with their fame forever’
“It is recommended that where feasi-
ble, posts will arrange with the pastors
of churches at which meraorial services
are to be held, to select texts illustrative |
‘of ‘the gains to American citizenship by
the success of the Union soldiers, and
of the cause of those who battle for the
{ Union.’
“The success attending the visit to
the public schools by comrads on the
school day next preceeding May 30, has
been so great that the continoance of
the costam is arged. Tell the children
